I actually like your original portrait's orientation much better. Also, the original has a very nice mottled texture like a painting that is missing in the second. The clouds, light and colours in the sky is very impressive. I would remove the wires. When I visited your beautiful country one thing that really impressed me was the almost total absence of above ground services even in the most remote areas unlike North America where they are everywhere.
The HDR in the original is very well done and effective as it looks quite nature. Too often HDR images look overdone and fake. One thing I like about the second post is the angle that the road enters the image at the bottom and curves toward the house.
There is some slight vignetting in the corners which could be removed.
I find the house a little low in the composition in the original post. Using the rule of thirds the house should be placed on level with the lower third line. This could have been achieved without loosing any of the great sky if the image had been shot from a lower angle, closer to the ground.

I love it, but I may be biased. Having been a mountaineer for more than quarter of a century, I've come across this kind of scene many times in the Scottish Highlands - I'm assuming that's where this is? - quite often after a long day on the hills, approaching a very welcome bothy. I could never tire of looking at this. Nice one!!

Incidentally, is this a bothy?

Thanks Joe im just getting used to photoshop, for being able to remove the wires and the like, but i shall remember what you said and put it into practise for future photographs.

Cheers Jim this was taken on an island of the North West coast of Scotland 'North Uist' Much the same as the highlands. Also i don't think it is a bothy as it has not been used or lived in for 15 years or maybe more. Which is a shame, When there is a high tide from the stream next to it, the water goes in the house!

Sounds like other bothies I've stayed in then but when you finally get the shelter from those big Westerly storms you get up there, they're Paradise! :) A delightful part of the country and a shot to match.
